/k/ I'm a non-gun owner, but I'm thinking of buying something neat to bring along for a gag on spring break. What's the perfect intersection of cheap, wild-west-y, and effective against bootleggers for 'self-defense'?
Probably not gonna fire it, just need something on the lower end of the price range that could definitely kill a bootlegger if I run into trouble. What does sawed-off mean and is it illegal?
is that some kind of code word for nigger?
I'd suggest a .45 ACP pistol or .357 Magnum revolver.
alright, where do you live in and where are you going over spring break.
we need to know because gun laws vary immensely between states.
you can easily land yourself in a lot of trouble.
Mare's Leg, nigga.
Doesn't get much wild-wester than that.
A concealed carry may not transfer or be legal to carry in another state. It will depend if they honor the state you got the license in.
Also it sounds like you getting a gun because you are planning on doing something illegal. Don't do that.
first off apply for a concealed carry permit. that will be legal in every state in between except illinois.
next go to a shooting range.
ask the clerk what handguns they have for rent.
ask them to let you handle the ones that interest you, and to explain how to operate them.
take notes on the ones that interest you.
rent the ones that feel the most comfortable and intuitive, and shoot a box of ammo to get a feel for it.
go home and do some online research using the notes you took earlier.
if you're still having trouble THEN start a thread on /k/
OP is a dumbfuck retard who's probably going to get himself a free ticket to jail/prison for doing something dumb with a gun that he thinks he needs for the "rampant moonshiner problems" in Kentucky even though he's probably going nowhere near the Appalachian mountains.
Self defense against bootleggers? Where the fuck are you going for spring break, the backwoods of West Virginia? I really hope you're just posting for gits and shiggles. Otherwise, please, do not buy a gun. You obviously shouldn't have one, and you'll give the rest of us a bad name.
If you're doing this as a gag, get a fake gun. From what you're implying it seems like you're going to point it at your marine buddy, that is a wonderful way for it to go off and you to have a dead friend.
If you're 100% serious about self defense, bring it up to your buddy and see if he has any guns he can teach you how to use it. We just don't wanT your friend shot.
Those in particular are made by Henry.
They are available in a variety of calibers.
Seems the MSRP is between $450 and $1000, depending on caliber, finish, options etc.
They have a dealer-finder on their website.
Note that Mare's Legs are a type of gun, not a specific model, so other manufacturers make them.
Depending on manufacturer and condition, they can generally be had used for not too much dosh. Look up the price for the ammunition before choosing one, as that can affect your budget.
Check gunbroker, auctionarms, and armslist for online stuff, and call local dealers to see if they have any and how much. You know... pretty much the same as shopping for other shit.

This is the sort of thing you do with toys. Guns are not toys and can be very dangerous, especially in the hands of the untrained (you).
But if you insist on doing reckless things, I would recommend you get something that isn't as likely to land you in hot water by breaking the law.
If you are interested in the "wild-west-y" stuff, take a look at some cap and ball revolvers
You can usually get these without too much red tape (check your state laws if you aren't sure) and they are good conversation starters.
Look, I know that if it's not firing, and I point it at myself to look down the barrel to see why it's not firing, it'll go off. I've seen the movies. There won't be any *accidental* shootings when I buy a gun.
Those are neat, but a little more on the antique spectrum, I'm thinking more along the lines of >>28560465 and am probably gonna go with that.
Are you a fucking retard bud or just baiting? People like you are why people think guns "just go off". I hope if you do have a negligent discharge that it's when the barrel is aimed at you.
Firing a gun inside a vehicle is illegal. Where are you going to spring break at because I am actually going to find you and buttfuck you. I just need the location I'm sure I can find some retard swinging a mares leg around if I get the general area.
If he gets shot... he'll have nobody but himself to blame.
We're all to blame for the 35,000 gun deaths that this country experiences each year. Never forget, anon: Every gun owner is responsible until he's not. Every criminal is law-abiding until he commits a crime. Anon would still be alive if he had been required to take even a brief course on gun safety.
It's black powder so you don't have to deal with an NFA stamp but it's $900.
I agree. Now you know I'm not against the 2nd Amendment, and I don't want to take anyone's guns, but I think it's important that we have an open and honest debate about reasonable measures to take your guns. Even if we can save just one child somewhere maybe, it's worth it.
Yeah screwing over future generations and putting them in a difficult position with an oppressive regime is in charge isn't a problem since we won't be alive then. Plus that's never happened in human history where there's been an oppressive government that has killed it's own citizens.
Hey guys let's start voting for more communist. Marx had so many revolutionary ideas!
Oh yeah those dumb republicans don't care about future generations with global warming and all they're just a bunch of bigots for not wanting to allow a bunch of potential isis members into the country.
I just want to have an open and balanced debate. That's why you're now on the do not fly list.
Did I mention I don't want to take your guns, though?
